Sewn Together Design Team Call

Hi everyone
Today I have five projects to show you that are part of my submission to be part of the Sewn Together Design Team. I'm really excited at the prospect of working with digital stamp images.

This first card was made using one of my favorite Tilda stamps from Magnolia called Tilda with Basket, she was stamped with Brilliance ink and then she has been coloured with Copic markers. The papers are from Hot off the Press and the card stock is from Making Memories

This is a close up of her

My next card is made using another one of the beautiful Tilda stamps from magnolia called Tilda with Sunflower, she was once again stamped with Brilliance ink and coloured with copic markers. The papers for this card are from Provocrafts Rob & Bob collection.

And this is her close up

For this card I decided to use one of the stamps from my Stampavie collection, it's from their Rachelle Ann Miller line and is called Candy Time. This time I decided to colour the image with my Faber Castell pencils and blend with Sansador (Gamsol) on paper stumps. The papers for this one are again from Hot off the Press.

Here is the close up of Candy time

For my fourth card I choice a stamp from my Whiff of Joy collection from their Guardian Angel collection called Melinda with Muffin Basket. For a change I decided to colour her with watercolours for a different feel, when I use watercolours my style tends to be quite lose and free unlike when I use copics where I try to have everything super blended. The papers for this card are from Diecuts With A View.

This is a close up of her

For my final card I decided to again use a stamp from Whiff of Joy from their Medieval Collection called Princess Charlotte. To colour this image I went back to using my copic markers, my daughter loves this image so much and asked if I would colour her using her favorite copic marker colours (she is not happy at all that she is not allowed to use mums craft markers!) so the whole project was based around the colours she choose. The papers are again from Diecuts with a View,
And here is the close up of Charlotte

I really hope that Sewn Together like the cards that I have produced as I would so love to be a part of their team, to me their images are a perfect blend of two things that I love the most computer crafting and colouring stamped images. Fingers crossed that they do

Anyway thats all from me today, I'm off to play with the other images that I stamped out just in case. Take care

Hi Donna,
Congrats on becoming a DT member! Also welcome to the Magnolia group! Your cards are all fabulous. You did a fantastic job coloring with your new Copic markers. Look forward to seeing more Maggies from you.

Your Tilda's are darling, Donna! Great job! I mainly use the Copic Caio markers as they are cheaper to buy.......then I fill in the gaps (in colors) with the Sketch markers.
Huggies & welcome to our little Maggie group ~
